Just how poor Newcastle are in front of goal was seen clearly today at Watford, and the home side were not good and we were the better side in booth halves but we just couldn’t score – and the good news we suppose is that we created a number of chances.
But then we absolutely gifted Watford their goal just a minute before half time after they hadn’t looked like they would score.
It’s yet another case of very wasteful finishing from Newcastle and our fourth 1-0 defeat in a row.
Charnley and Ashley – have to become ambitious – and quickly too
And things cannot be looking too good for either Newcastle or manager Steve McClaren either after another toothless performance in front of goal.
What is clear is that Newcastle cannot just bring in one striker in January – we need a couple brought in – if we are to have any chance of remaining in the Premier League this season.
And Newcastle cannot try to bring cut price players in or not pay the going price for talented striker(s) who could save us this season.
After all Newcastle are set to lose around £135M a season when the new £5B deal kicks in.
We know it’s difficult for the Newcastle of today to be ambitious and decisive – but that’s what the club will have to be in January, if we are to survive in the Premier League come May.
Newcastle seem to be in free fall these last 13 months or so and it has to be stopped – and the sooner the better.
Save our club – before it’s too late!
